where to buy icees in toronto?

i have a major hankering for an icee. i'd prefer not to have to go to a drive-in in oakville or to niagara falls to sate my icee desire. any leads?

  1. Would you mind explaining what an icee is?

    thanks

    1. you can get them pretty much any mall that has a pretzelmaker/mrs.fields.

      i know scarborough town centre has them for sure. saw two kids drinking them today.
      yumm...blue raspberry icee.

        Maybe he means a real icey, AKA "italian ice" in New York, they are like street vendors you would find much like a sausage vendor in Toronto, served in a cone or paper cup with a wooden spoon

        Not the half-frozen syrupy sugar-laden goop from a tap

        These are like a special flavoring drizzled over finely crushed filtered ice

        just a thought of course :P maybe he means the crappy gas-station iceys in which case any petro-canada or esso usually have the machines now

      2. Oh!! Icee slushy machines with the polar bear, I remember those!! haven't had one in such a long time,I used to get a combination of the blue and red flavors.

        I have no cravings for it,but I have fond memories of getting one along with a beef patty in Dufferin mall

          Don't confuse these with SlushPuppies or any non-carbonated slush-type drink.
          These are the light fluffy carbonated drinks.

          You can get them at AMC theaters in and around GTA, (Downtown for sure)

          :)

        2. I think you can get these at 7-11's too? I've never been a huge fan, but my nieces love them. They found one at the convenience store at the corner of Queen and John and were quite happy and then quite hyper!

          1. There is an icee machine at the Pretzel shop at Yorkdale. (across from the second cup)

              Bump this. I used to love ICEE'S, they used to be commonplace at most shopping malls. Anywhere else in York Region other than Yorkdale?

              1. re: callitasicit

                Woodbine Centre sells them near the indoor amusement park.
                Canada's Wonderland has them.
                Also commonly available at Rogers Centre (the only reason my kids enjoy going to a baseball game).

                  In the States, Burger King sells them but of course they aren't offered here! That would've been the only good excuse for me to visit them lol.

                    Good reason to go to the ball game, sort of kidding;)

              2. I've seen the ICEE machines at most Pretzel Maker and Mrs. Fields locations in malls but not certain if they're at all of them. I know the one in the basement of 10 Dundas East has one. But here's a location list so might want to give the one closer to you a call.

                They also sell the ICEE brand at the AMC Theatres in 10 Dundas East.
